Attention! Due to the high levels of snow the Tahoe area has received this winter, we have not established an official opening date for rafting. Our goal will be to open July 1st but this is very condition dependent. Check back in the next few weeks for updates! Looking forward to a great season!
TRUCKEE RIVER RAFT CO. is the original Tahoe Rafting company. We are located on River Road/Highway 89 in the heart of Tahoe City, California. Our raft excursions consist of a leisurely, self-guided, five-mile float down the Truckee River. Our voyage is perfect for family and friends ages 2 and up. You’ll cruise through mellow and serene areas with picturesque mountain views and lively little rapids, punctuated here and there with perfect swimming holes and picnic spots.
We happily welcome dogs and encourage you to bring lunch and drinks (but remember, NO Styrofoam or glass) or just enjoy the view! The adventure takes 2 to 3 hours to complete and we are the ONLY rafting concession that exits directly onto the River Ranch Patio.
2-3 Hours • Adults: $45 • Children: $35
$5 off prepaid online reservations!
This leisurely raft ride takes you five miles down the beautiful Truckee River! Enjoy the amazing scenery and feel free to pack a lunch and drinks. We also offer group rates!
We have a large parking lot across from the River Ranch called Hidden Valley where rafters can sign up and ride our free shuttle bus to the start of the trip. This is a great place to park because you take the bus in the beginning and end up at your car after the float! We also have limited parking at the start but this fills up fast and we encourage rafters to park in the large Hidden Valley lot. Our shuttle bus serves patrons from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
All of our trips Include: Free parking, shuttle bus, paddles, and life jackets for rafters 2 years and older. All rafts are large, sturdy, commercial white water grade and comfortable for 2-20 people!
